The Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny and very warm, but it cooled off when we entered the forest. Swainson's Thrush’s entertained us all morning. Turkey Vultures and Bald Eagles flew overhead. We had great views of three McGillivray's Warblers perched and singing on the walk. A Western Tanager was seen high up in the tall tree near the trail. A Pileated Woodpecker was spotted flying into its nest hole along the edge of the forest. Willow Flycatchers and Pacific-slope Flycatchers were heard during the walk. A Common Yellowthroat gave us great views in the bushes just off the road. A juvenile Great Horned Owl was spotted perched in a tree back in the bushes. An adult Great Horned Owl was being mobbed by American Robins along the trail at the end of the walk.
